The platform used to create the products and images seen on this domain were created on a mac. This is not about status or critique on other platforms. Since creating Hexatrigon it has become more of an issue that the platform is less compatible for engineering / CAD production. Or more precisely the shape
The understanding of manufacturing infrastructure depends on earlier developments so that dynamic makes sense. However even though costs can overcome this problem that is not something that will immediately change. However I do not believe the shape would exist, in such platforms, as the 3D form would not ‘close’, and not made up with other polygonal forms.
Does that mean it should not exist?
It clearly does, and follows the principles of regular polyhedra.
The creation of the solid digital model that produced the model I call hexatrigon was exported as .stl. Further reading on the field that this format inhabits was as new as the creation was for me. More research on the infrastructure of the technology has me recognising the new dynamics and not just for me.
The UK is the base from which I create and from a extremely insulated position, that is displayed on this domain. The limited exposure to the market was largely subjectively, protection based in the sense of ownership, not with the ear to its global movements. Coincidence has happened in the sense that links and references placed on this domain are part of the same movement but isolated. Not being part of the larger thinking and not recognising the current infrastructure as the immediate target for the use of additive manufacture. Hexatrigon would not exist or be distributable without it. The experiences of Heaxtrigons’ digital production has been a steep learning curve, which has been at cutting edge driven by a singular obsession of making it real. If the difference in the metal frame models of its form with or without spheres on its vertices (that image of problem is not my property ) not its materials is limited by production limitation governed by their programming it was not a conscious disruptive move.
However it is a product of the technology that produces the best representations in terms of precision of its form.
